Cookie Policy

Cookie Policy – Moss Wood Pty Ltd

Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we and our partners deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”). Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalised experience for both visitors and registered members. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (adding something to your shopping basket/cart, for example). For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

Where we place cookies

We automatically set cookies when you visit our mosswood.com.au website.

Types of Cookie

The table below explains the types of cookies we use on our websites and why we use them.

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are essential for our website to perform their basic functions. These include those required to save the contents of your basket/cart when using our online store, applying your member discount when applicable.
  • Functionality: These cookies are used to store preferences set by users.
  • Analytics and Performance: Performance cookies collect information on how users interact with our website, including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. We use these details to improve how our website functions and to understand how users interact with it.

They are also used to build user profiles, including showing you ads based on products you’ve viewed or acts you have taken on our (and other) websites. These are set by trusted third party networks, and are generally persistent in nature.
